    I am sure if they did the staff will explain...I would think that if they in fact did, that they have a reason for it.

    Yep I'm sure they will, it's called censorship at it's finest.

    Forkup, please don't spread misinformation. I don't consider deleting troll posts censorship, I call it keeping the peace.

    There are people on the internet who take pride and gain joy from ruining other people's experience. Our goal is to keep this place fun and make sure that our members can enjoy the site and learn here.

    If we didn't "censor" anyone this place would be a free for all and we would find that soon our entire userbase left for places where they can actually learn and enjoy.

    I don't really follow much of the root news, posts, devs, etc. But I, for one, would really respect the mods if this is the case and on the up and up. It doesn't matter how well known or important someone is, if you break the rules you deserve to be punished. It would be significantly worse for the boards to let one person slide on a violation because of their importance or impact, while others do not get the same generosity.

    In addition, I do see a simple problem with his post... he says he "signed up just to call you out" -- Sounds to me like he signed up only to start trouble and not to contribute or even have a dialog. That's trolling.

    If he wants to come back and lay out some proof and conduct himself on the site the way that we expect all users to conduct themselves I have no problem with it.

    I find it sad that there are so much politics regarding ROMs when we are all on the same team. I have no loyalties or preferences to any ROM maker so to me it's all about keeping the peace and this place friendly.

    We don't want any ROM flamewars and our policy and history trying to keep this place clean proves that.

    No it's not. They aren't preventing him from saying anything. They are preventing him from saying it on their site. They own this place and have a right to determine what is acceptable and what is not. He can go to his own site and say anything he wants and so can anyone else. But if you are going to contribute here, it has to be by their rules.

    If you had worked on stuff like this for years and someone came along and took your stuff and claimed it for your own and didn't bother to credit the ones who wrote the source wouldn't you wanna jump on and have your say?

    Yes, I would. And there is a proper way to do it and a wrong way to do it.

    Let me put this to you, I've been working on this site with my blood, sweat and tears for a long time too. Doesn't that give me the choice to try and keep this place clean and free from flamewars?

    Do you think it's fair of Cyanogen is trying to incite a ton of people to come here to the site and troll and try to ruin this place for everyone else?

    Is our work any less then his work?
